New York City Business Travel Association


The New York City Business Travel Association (NYCBTA), an official chapter of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), provides an important forum for the exchange of information, education and ideas among its members, who include representatives from local corporations and leading travel industry suppliers. Our emphasis is to work together to better understand new and emerging travel management practices.

NYCBTA is committed to enhancing the travel profession by sponsoring educational and informational programs for its members, and by providing top-rated speakers to address travel-related issues, concerns and current "hot topic" items.

Our chapter is an excellent venue for the sharing of travel-related information and professional expertise, and is an organization focused on perfecting the science of business travel management.

Letter from the President - 7/21/2015

Well, we made it a bit past the half way point of the year and in the “dog days of summer”.  We have had a successful first half of the year.  Our meetings thus far have been well received and we have had sold out situations where we even had to manage a waitlist.  Past feedback from our members suggested a need to provide better content, speakers and subjects for our meetings; we listened and did just that.  

Our membership has also grown in part as a result of “word of mouth” based on the excitement generated by our meetings.  We are still working to entice folks to join so I implore you to reach out to folks that are not members, share with them the benefits of getting involved and ask them to attend a meeting so they can experience the value of what our organization brings.

Sponsorship also played a vital role in supporting our existence.  We would like to thank each and every sponsor who saw the value in the local GBTA chapter here in NYC; without them, we would have had a challenging time providing quality meetings.  At our upcoming meetings, please introduce yourself to our sponsor’s representatives and thank them for their support and encouragement.  Our sponsors are:

Now looking ahead, we have lots more in store with August 20 for our summer After Dark,  September 17 (tentative), October 29  for education and networking opportunities.  We are also very excited about our Education Day on November 12th.  It will be a full day of sessions with great speakers and topics.  In fact, we are even planning a silent auction reception that will end the day, so save the date as more information will be forthcoming.

See you in Orlando at GBTA and look out for our Summer Afterdark in August.
